Community School ProgramChildren & Youth Services
John Boner Neighborhood Centers’ Children & Youth Programs offer neighborhood youth opportunities to support healthy development; mentally, physically, socially, and academically. Our future leaders are provided with tools and the fundamental skills that support growth and progress. Parents also benefit as they receive the support and education needed to encourage their child’s academic growth and to help guide their future. Located at the Boner Fitness & Learning Center at the Chase Legacy Building, our strong partnership with Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) enables a wide-range of services and opportunities before, during, and after school. By offering these resources, families are better equipped for an improved quality of life.
